Living room bookshelf... Yamaha CX-630 (hooked up to Parasound HCA-750A and some B&W bookshelf speakers) and a Nikko NR-750 stereo receiver > Monitor Audio Silver S1 speakers and the old Magnavox CD player which sounds quite nice.. but I need to fix the CD tray not opening / closing on it's own right now.) The headphone section on the Nikko and Yamaha are both pretty good for my needs and I am occassionally know to drag my DT770's (or something with long cable) out there for some late night listening. there is a Yamaha DD turntable (YP-D6 circa 1977~) that I use mainly with these and a Chromecast audio

Great stuff! Where do you buy your vintage (I presume) electronics? Or have you had them for a while?

The little set up I use downstairs in my husband's office when I'm working down there. Put in a recommended RFT ECC82 foil getter in it and just using a cheapy DAC from an old iMac. I gifted him those and an HD700 when I first got into headphones and I have to say it sounds pretty amazing and the treble is inoffensive. It's got a hum, but still nice to know if I ever have to sell off my expensive gear I could learn to live with something much cheaper is still pretty great. Anyway, here's my low cost, unimpressive little set up which sounds great.

Where is the garage 1217 amp? Is it project ember?…🤔
Nope, it's just a tube adapter the Istanbul takes a 5670 tube. I wanted to try my Psvane 6SN7-SE in my Istanbul.

How do you like the 6SN7 compared to the Tesla ?
It brings the midrange out a bit, and expands the stage, and adds a hint of distortion, I do like the way it sounds, but it's not a keeper... I just wanted to try my
Psvane 6SN7-SE in the Istanbul.

The Tesla is a bit more laid back than the Psvane.

With that said, the Istanbul was built with a 5670 type tube in mind.

Not every 6SN7 will sound good, I've had em' sound like shizza, some sound good like this one. I just like to roll em'
